Grace Home Children
In 2013 our church chose a mission of mercy by building Grace Home to house 24 orphaned children in South Sudan. This project was under the supervision of Christ Church members Fred and Libby Dearing who volunteered their time and energy to see this mission project completed. Subsequently a second building was added by another church and the population grew to 36 parentless children.
In 2016 fighting broke out in South Sudan and these children along with thousands of others fled to a United Nations refugee camp in Uganda where they and the staff currently reside. Our church and the Holston Conference continue to support these children and the staff with permanent shelter, food, clothing, and education while they are in exile. Fred and Libby travel regularly to visit and minister to these children and would appreciate your prayers.
